Ok so I like simple/shorter names, nothing too frilly, want something cool/surfey/ slightly bohemian but not too try hard....her brother's name is Finn if that gives an idea of our taste.

Thanks so much in advance this is driving us both nuts!

Sydney usually spelt Sidonie for a girl or just "Cyd" is really nice.
Bay is also nice and kind of unisex.

Not a good idea to name your child after someone else's god surely?

Yey scout such a cool name always loved it since I first read to kill...

Finn and Rowan
Finn and Tamsin
Finn and Imogen
Finn and Alex(andra)
Finn and Thea
Finn and Nina
Finn and Juno
Finn and Joelle

None of these are too frilly/ girly/ popular, and I think they're all quite cool, and go with your DS's name.

Do let us all know what you choose!

Thank you all so much for your suggestions. I love Scout and am going to talk dp into it.

Thanks again for all your input!
